If you have browsed a lot of sites, you have probably come across some error message once in a while. An error could take place when the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the server (Error 404). Getting such messages may often be aggravating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting companies permit you to use your own error pages that will match the style of your own Internet site and that may have any content that you want - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some witty comment. Such a feature can help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Hosting

You can set up custom made error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all hosting plans which we provide, so when you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll be displayed, you can choose the type of error page that should show up - a default one from our system, a standard Apache server page or a personalized one. For the aforementioned alternative, you will need to assign the URL to the page, so when you use custom made pages, you must upload the files in your website hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file placed inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each error type. The correct syntax can be found in our Knowledge Base, to help you use this feature even if you do not have any previous experience.
